Blue Mood. Walberswick.

This painting is quite unusual for me.
Blue Mood. Walberwick.
Mary Kemp.
Oil on board. 30 x 30 cm.
Generally I like to pack as much as I possibly can into a picture, covering a lot of the surface with detail and colour changes. But for this piece I wanted calm and peace. I wanted you to be drawn to the black building in the distance like I am although the foreground was littered with boats.
It took quite a few layers of paint to achieve these colours, and I have to say I reveled in their richness. Sometimes paint can be quite self indulgent.
